Abstract


The subject of Production deals with the use of fixtures that ensure repeatability to the work piece to be manufactured. The fixture is a clamping device that mounts parts at perfect location and gives stability, which leads to mass production. This type of clamping plays a decisive role in getting good reliability of the product. Collet is one of the clamping devices which has long slits around its periphery, widely used for clamping any kind of shape of the work piece (Cylindrical, Hexagonal, Square etc.) in manufacturing industries.

 

The research work focuses on analytical and numerical design and developing a work holding expanding collet. The collet under study is Double sided single angle collet. A mathematical model of clamping force is prepared. Spaceclaim is used for modelling a collet assembly, ANSYS is used for solving Finite Element Analysis and to validate results.
